He tried to make a break for it.

Video shows a handcuffed teenager darting out of a police cruiser and sprinting away from cops on a Florida beach while a crowd of spring breakers cheers him on.

One of the beachgoers slyly opened the door of the Clearwater Police car, allowing the teen to slip out and make his daring escape, according to the TikTok footage, captioned “Florida SRING BREAK.”

“He’s coming out,” someone says, as the teen runs off on the sand, wearing blue swim trunks and with his hands still in cuffs behind his back.

The group of revelers then chased after the teen, who was soon stopped by a cop and dragged off by his handcuffs, according to a second video.

Clearwater Police identified the teen in the video as Dominic Glass, 18, on Thursday and said he had been charged with escape, resisting an officer without violence and disorderly conduct.

The person suspected of opening the door was also taken into custody, cops said.

Glass, of Land O’ Lakes, Florida, had allegedly been involved in a brawl on the beach at about 7 p.m. Wednesday when cops first tried to arrest him.

“While many of the young adults in the video think this is funny, it has turned what would have been a very minor violation to one that will have severe consequences,” Chief Dan Slaughter told local outlet Fox13.

Overall on Wednesday, police arrested four people at the beach, including one accused of battering an officer.
